Mudhoney - Superfuzz Bigmuff 12 inch
Superfuzz Bigmuff is the debut EP by the Seattle grunge band Mudhoney. It was released in October 1988 through record label Sub Pop. The songs later appeared on their 1990 compilation album Superfuzz Bigmuff Plus Early Singles. The album was named after two of the band's favorite guitar effects pedals: the Univox Super Fuzz and the Electro-Harmonix Big Muff, which helped to provide the band's signature "dirty" sound. The cover artwork is a photograph of frontman Mark Arm (left) and guitarist Steve Turner (right) by photographer Charles Peterson. During initial release, the EP sold incredibly poorly (even by Sub Pop standards), however it has since been acknowledged as one of the seminal records of the Seattle scene. In mid 2008 the EP charted at #25 on the UK Indie Album Chart, a peak for the EP, twenty years after its release.
